Complete Japan Discovery
Encompassing a cruise around the Japanese isles and tours of Mount Fuji, Hiroshima and Kyoto, this comprehensive holiday to the Far East is a once in a lifetime experience. Mount Fuji, ancient temples, tranquil gardens and speeding Bullet trains are but a few of the sights on offer. Starting off in Tokyo, the modern capital of Japan, you will be escorted to Mount Fuji and Lake Hakone via Bullet train. Then cruise around the Japanese archipelago and breathe in the scenery on show such as snow capped peaks, misty inlets, tranquil fishing harbours, lush greenery, towering waterfalls, bubbling hot springs and colourful temples perched on rocky outcrops. End this immersive holiday with a two night stay in Kyoto, the ancient Capital of Japan, with tours of Hiroshima, Miyajima and Kyoto itself included.
Hiroshima & Kyoto Tours: At the end of your cruise enjoy a two day tour from Kyoto - the ancient capital of Japan until 1868. Visit ancient shrines, enjoy quiet contemplation in imposing temples and marvel at golden masterpieces shimmering in classical gardens. No visit to Japan would be complete without a trip to Hiroshima and the red Torri gate which seemingly floats on the water at Miyajima - one of the top three scenic spots in Japan. The A-Bomb Dome in Hiroshima is an absolute must-see as it was one of the few buildings left standing after the blast and has been preserved in its skeletal state as a tangible link to Hiroshima’s unique past. On your final day, you will be treated to a full day departure tour of Kyoto where you ponder the art of meditation at Kiyomizu-dera (the temple of the Goddess of Mercy), gaze upon the stunning Golden Pavillion (Kinkakuji Temple) and round it all off with shopping trip to the famous Gion district.
